The century of taste the philosophical odyssey of taste in the eighteenth century by George Dickie ( )
15 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 1,044 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Century of Taste offers an exposition and critical account of the central figures in the early development of the modern philosophy of art. Dickie traces the modern theory of taste from its first formulation by Francis Hutcheson, to blind alleys followed by Alexander Gerard and Archibald Allison, its refinement and complete expression by Hume, and finally to its decline in the hands of Kant. In a clear and straightforward style, Dickie offers sympathetic discussions of the theoretical aims of these philosophers, but does not shy from controversy--pointing out, for instance, the obscurities

Introduction to aesthetics : an analytic approach by George Dickie ( Book )
11 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Introduction to Aesthetics: An Analytic Approach traces aesthetics from its ancient beginnings through the changes it underwent in the eighteenth, nineteenth, and the first half of the twentieth century. The first half of the book outlines the history of the two organized notions of aesthetics - the theory of beauty and the theory of art - and describes the transformation they went through from ancient Greek times until the 1950s. The responses of the cultural theories in the 1960s to these earlier developments are then discussed in detail. Four addition topics - intentionalistic criticism, symbolism, metaphor, and expression - are also addressed. Finally, five traditional art evaluational theories are presented, and the author constructs an evaluational theory of his own by building on ideas drawn from the work of Monroe Beardsley and Nelson Goodman. Written by one of the foremost philosophers of aesthetics, this engaging text is ideal for undergraduate courses in the philosophy of art and aesthetics, and is also suitable for graduate seminars and courses in these areas. It offers students both a historical introduction to and the latest work on theories of art, theories of the experience of art, and theories of art evaluation
